Current & Past Research
The architecture team is currently obtaining in depth insight in to computer architecture. They are studying scientific papers and are learning to use the M5 simulator.
Currently the Inspired Robotics team is porting a Robotics communication language named "CLAMR" (Communication Language for Autonomous Multi-Robot Systems, Proceedings of the 12th IASTED International Conference) to the Kephera III robot. The Kephera III is an extremely advanced robot with large amounts of memory and processing power.
Paper on COMMUNICATION LANGUAGE FOR AUTONOMOUS MULTI-ROBOT SYSTEMS
Wired- After developing a Mobile Robot capable of navigation ,obstacle detections and communication, it is the intent of this research team to develop a more efficient and intelligent means of implementing behaviors for robotic control. Using a layered architecture, the robot will employ a more sophisticated algorithm for determining its path(s) and obstacle avoidance behaviors. This research will focus only on the actual implementation and demonstration of this architecture and exclude the learning curves required for the individual sensors used. The communication will be done using aircables to dectect osbtacles.
